Have you ever taken the time to put yourself in another person's shoes?

+ Switching Roles Have you ever looked at things from a different point of view?

+ As a Parent… Have you thought about how it is to be a child or teenager in this day and age? I would, personally, not change the time period in which I grew up in, which was mostly the 80s. As a parent, keep these in mind:  Overwhelming technology  Pressures to excel in EVERYTHING, not just football anymore  Standardized tests  Negative encouragement to be lazy, not work, and do the least amount possible.

+ As a parent…  Understand that they are living now and now is different than then.  Encourage by leading and modeling, not by fear and force  Discipline and set realistic standards  A test does not prove anything more than knowledge gained and remembered at that moment.  Monitor the technology use, even during the rough times  Challenge within reason and with love

+ As an employee…. Did you ever take the time to look at your job from the employers point of view? Have you thought if their needs are being met? Do they wake up wanting to come to work every day? Many times, it can be very effective in putting yourself in the other person’s shoes. It gives us a perspective that does not come naturally. It forces us to reflect on someone other than ourselves.

+ As an employee…  Understand that your employer has stress, deadlines, and much responsibility.  Know that your employer has a life outside of work, or at least I hope they do!  Respect the responsibilities your employer has to the company, clients, and customers.  Remember that your actions and words have an effective on everyone they encounter.

+ As an employer… Did you ever take the time to look at your employee’s work day? Have you taken the time to form a relationship with all of your employees, not just a select few? Have you created an environment of open communication between you and your employees? It is very easy for employers to get so caught up in their responsibilities and deadlines, that they overlook how their employees really feel about coming to work that day. This can greatly affect their productivity, which in turn affects the company as a whole.

+ As an employer…  Take the time to get to know your employees  Set realistic expectations  Take in consideration your employees strengths and weaknesses  Be a leader  Know the difference between a leader and a boss  Understand that your employees have a life outside of work  Be approachable
